A Florida man says he’s had his life “ruined” by a fake “dream coat” he bought online.
The coat, sold as a “dream cap” by an unnamed seller in an online ad, has a faux-maroon fleece over the head and body of a man.
“It’s not a dream coat,” Matt Sosnowski told the Orlando Sentinel.
Sosnowsky says he bought the coat in February after hearing it was made by a man in New York, who described it as a replica of a real coat.
He was initially skeptical, thinking the “dreamcap” was a fake.
But Sosdowski’s wife discovered the coat was real when she returned home from the airport.
Sosnerowski was able to get his order canceled on March 11 after his wife complained.
The next day, the same seller posted a statement on the company’s Facebook page that said the coat “was not authentic.”
“There was no guarantee that it would be authentic,” the company wrote.
“We were not able to verify the authenticity of the product at the time we purchased the product.”
